It is composed of various functions used to generate various types of noise statistics and to perform noise cancellation and detection.The current version (ver 1.2.1 ) supports the generation of Middleton Class A, Symmetric Alpha Stable, and the bivariate Middleton Class A random variables. For the evaluation of communication performance under the presence of the aforementioned noise types, the current version (ver 1.2.1) of the toolbox implements a PAM communication system with correlation detection, Wiener filtering followed by correlation detection, the optimal Bayes detection developed by Spaulding and Middleton , and the small-signal approximation of the optimal Bayes Detection. Further the toolbox implements a 2x2 MIMO communication system using M-QAM modulation, spatial multiplexing and alamouti transmission strategies with optimal Gaussian maximum likelihood (ML) receiver, optimal and suboptimal ML receivers in the presence of bivariate Middleton Class A noise . In addition to that, it implements the following parameter estimation algorithms: Method of Moments , Zabin and Poor , Tsihrintzis . This toolbox also includes various demos that illustrate the usage of the implemented functions, and generate various results. Ver 1.2.1 also added a demo providing capability to send user files through a impulsive noise channels.
